    i finally went and picked up the skull, needs a lil cleaning. here is a pic of the skull and the orchid i was originally thinking of, one of my mini Catt hybrids. i think i need a smaller orchid. this is the smallesst of my normal species. any species i have smaller than this guy are WAY smaller. any ideas?

    What if you turned it over and put the Catt inside the cavity? Or could you divide a single psuedobulb from the clump? It looks like that little bunch on the right is pretty far offset, from the photo. I like this idea. There's a big pile of some sort of bones in the park by my house, I should go look for something appropriate for containers... Do you think this method would work with a little Phaleonopsis? I don't know much about my orchids; my old roommate dumped them on me when he moved out. I seem to remember Phaleonopsis are some of the more water-loving orchids, so maybe they aren't the best candidate.

    yeah that mini Catt has about 5 growth points and i planned on just taking 2 or 3 psuedobulbs i was just thinking proportions, i think i need a bigger skull or a smaller orchid for it to look right.

    A leafless orchid would look KILLER(pun intended) on a skull! would be pretty cool, and you can find small leafless for reasonable prices now a days! They just need LOTS of humidity to do well.

    I could see a small animal skull in a natural tank set up but the human skulls I looked at in the very first post gave me the creeps even if most of them were replicas. I don't think I could have that in my home anywhere. Actually, I know I wouldn't have one in my home anywhere. Do you all have wives that will let you have human skulls in your homes? Am I the only one getting the heevie jeevies over having a human skull on my coffee table?
